    I just bought a new lazer z 60" with a bagger. I have never had a bagger before and was wondering what some of you other guys use as far as blades with the bagger? Any input would be appreciated.

    On my bob-cat I use gator blades because they compact the grass alot better, thus not having to empty as often. But with the gators I do have to slow down more. With the regular high lifts that I used to use, they would cut cleaner at higher speeds but yet I would have to empty twice as often. Blades really aren't too expensive, if I were you I would buy a set of a couple different kinds and see which ones you like best.

    I have the baffled mulch kit on my 60 z, high lift gator mulcher magnum blades from Oregon, they are awesome, I would recommend them to anyone, they are perfect for me in any type of season and on any grass.
